Tensile Facemasks

One of the many tests that can be carried out with our Universal Testing Machines is the tensile test. In the case of masks, which have become an indispensable accessory during the COVID-19 crisis, we test the traction of their rubber and fabric to measure their tensile strength.

Universal Testing Machines are designed to perform a wide variety of tests (compression, bending, tearing, peeling) and mechanical tests in different industries and materials (plastics, films, rubber, packaging, non-woven, filter material, leather, paper, etc.

Thanks to its versatility and easy handling, we carry out very precise tests to measure the traction of the rubber and tissue of the masks to find out their resistance. Likewise, with our universal tensile tester we can also test the sealing resistance of the masks.
